a felony conviction in florida you cannot vote. fine, so they caught all these felons and they removed him from the voter rolls. how do i know they were black? in florida every african-american has black next to their name. that is by law. so it's very easy to target black voters. now, as it turns out i started going through these names. i will give you one name, okay? from in the book here where i show you the actual purge list in "billionaires & ballot bandits." there is a mr. robert moore convicted of a felony crime and so all the black robert moore's in florida lost their. there are a few in florida but not only robert moore's from florida but brought moore, bobby more's they said these were covers for for the spell in trying to, including mrs. bobby moore. mr. moore gets convicted of a crime and mrs. bobby moore loses her vote but they got thing -- one thing right. she is b. al: a and by the way when i say she is, this is not from kathryn harrison's list. this is from a current list used by the state of florida, in which every single voter on this list, everyone, no exception, their o

and we are still waiting on an official number from florida. it is obvious the state has not fixed its voting problems. as i'm sure you remember, it was florida 12 years ago causing the legal disaster between vice president al gore and president george bush. the difference this time, no one cares as much. president obama's victory was well secured without florida's 29 electoral votes. but for florida natives this is frustrating and all too familiar. the state's whole voting system is plagued by bad management and dysfunction. it is usually elected officials running the voting process rather than nonpartisan professionals to. make this system more efficient what florida needs now is better access to polling places and more absentee and early voting. >>> it's also affecting the congressional race. g.o.p. representative allen west is now demanding a recount. the election there is still too close to call. west is down just 3,000 votes against his democratic opponent patrick murphy. west is blaming a county supervisor for r
